visualize them on the macroscopic scale The distance between molecules in the gas phase is very large compared to the size of the particles themselves Particles of gas are in constant random and rapid motion The molecules collide with each other and the container walls but do not lose kinetic energy The average kinetic energy of gas molecules is proportional to the gas temperature All gases regardless of their molecular masses have the same average kinetic energy at the same temperature Pressure arises from collisions of the molecules with the container walls Molecular Speed and Kinetic Energy The molecules in a gas sample do not move at the same speed At a given temperature some molecules move fast some move slow and many move at an intermediate speed At 25 C more molecules are F moving at about 400 ms than at any other speed Many more molecules are moving at 02 at 25 c 1600 ms when the sample is at 1000 C than when itis at 25 C 02 at 1000 c Number of molecules gt 0 200 400

highest speeds E Wm average We cannot calculate the KE for a collection of molecules because the speeds are different but we can calculate an average value Average KE is also directly proportional to

molecules with the walls of the container holding the gas gas pressure force of collisions area The force depends on the number of collisions and the average force per collision As temperature increases the average KE increases the force of the collisions increases and more collisions occur per second because the speed of the gas molecules increases When this occurs the pressure increases P on T when n and V are constant Kinetic Molecular Theow and Gas Laws Increasing the number of molecules does not change the average collision force but does increase the number of collisions per second When this occurs the pressure increases P on n when T and V are constant When T or n increase and the pressure remains constant the volume must increase as does the area over which collisions can occur V or nT when P is constant When T and n remain constant while the volume of the container is decreased the number of collisions on the container per second must increase resulting in an increase in pressure P a 1V when T and n are constant Diffusion and Effusion Diffusion The gradual mixing of molecules of two or more gases due to their random molecular motions time gt Over time the gases

MMunknown 58 X 10396 molhr 1000gmo Solving for the MM yields a value of 63 gmol Light molecules effuse more rapidly than heavy molecules Nonideal Behavior Real Gases Deviations from the ideal gas law occur at high pressures or low temperatures This is due to a breakdown of the assumptions used to describe an ideal gas Assumption Gas particles have negligible size At around 1 atm of pressure a single gas molecule is very small relative to the total volume of space it moves in Problem Higher pressures mean more gas particles When the pressure is increased to 1000 atm each gas particle has a much smaller share of the volume and the particle size becomes important Nonideal Behavior Real Gases Deviations from the ideal gas law occur at high pressures or low temperatures Assumption Gas particles behave independently Gas molecules do not interact with each other by any intermolecular forces Problem Gases can be liquefied therefore forces exist When a gas molecule is about to strike the container wall other molecules near it exert a slight pu so the molecule actually hits the wall with less force this causes the gas pressure for a real gas to be lower than expected van der Waals Equation The breakdown of the ideal gas equation can be corrected using the van der Waals equation P a Killzxv 93 nRT I l 39 correction for correCtlon for molecular volume Intermolecular forces observed pressure container volume The observed pressure is lower than the ideal pressure due to intermolecular forces so the correction factor is added The molecules take up more space so less volume
